Fox News’ Griff Jenkins spoke to protesters who rallied in Washington, D.C. on Thursday to oppose the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Demonstrators made it clear they were mad that Kavanaugh — who has denied allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, including those from Dr. Christine Ford — might be confirmed as early as Saturday.
Jenkins asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — who spoke at a rally outside the Barrett Prettyman Courthouse — if Kavanaugh has been afforded due process and the presumption of innocence.
“This is a job interview. And the question is about the evidence that is presented and the credibility of [Ford’s] her claim,” Warren said.
When Jenkins posed the same question to several protesters, they accused Kavanaugh of lying and said there are enough allegations swirling that his “job application” should be denied.
“The public is the people who should be making decisions about what they need and what they deserve, not some f***ing rich white man who doesn’t give a f*** about us,” one woman said.
The Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill also braved the streets of D.C. to see what anti-Kavanaugh protesters had to say.
Hamill revealed that many demonstrators said they would support a new investigation into Kavanaugh’s drinking in high school and college, which she called “absolutely absurd.”
“Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been investigated more than any other U.S. Supreme Court nominee in U.S. history,” Hamill said.
She also spoke to some protesters who said Kavanaugh “should be behind bars,” not awaiting confirmation to the nation’s highest court.
“There is no corroborating evidence. Zero, zilch. And yet they still want to lock up an innocent man behind bars,” Hamill said. “I would not want to be [on] the receiving end of this mob. The idea that the presumption of innocence is dead in this country or it only applies to a certain few is extremely scary to me.”
